Fender Vintera ’60s Jazz Bass Sunburst

Fender Vintera '60s Jazz Bass Sunburst

The Fender Vintera 60’s Jazz bass is loaded with features from Fenders Golden era at a more affordable price point. This bass features a mid 60’s C shaped neck carve and a 7.25” radius. The maple neck has a Pau Ferro fretboard and vintage sized frets. The re-voiced 60’s single coil pickups have more of that authentic grit and growl that made the Jazz bass a legend. The open gear tuners, vintage saddles and three tone sunburst finish top really round out the classic aesthetic on this bass.

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Here we have a handsome, almost all original, Fender Precision Bass Maple neck built at the CBS/Fender Fullerton plant in 1975 – the pot codes date to 1974. First appearing in October 1951, the Fender Precision bass was a brilliant piece of industrial design. This innovation brought modern influences to the bass world – such as the ability to reliably and consistently produce a precise pitch, and to play at any volume without feedback. Quickly adopted, the Precision Bass was updated in 1954 to visually match the new Stratocaster, and has been in production with really only minor modifications since then.   The P-Bass is arguably one of the most functionally successful bass instruments ever built, having appeared on more recordings and stages than any other bass.

Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Bigsby, Sunburst

The Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Bigsby is Mexican made guitar for players that prefer the vintage style and features from Fenders classic years. This guitar features a thick fat shouldered early 60s neck shape with a 7.25” fretboard radius.

Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

The Ibanez S61AL Axion Label is a slim double cutaway guitar with curvy lines and a fast playing neck. In contrast to the sharper lines of the Ibanez RG line this guitar takes more cues from other classic double cutaways. However, the reverse headstock, arched top and black mirage gradation finish certainly provide a modern aesthetic as well. The body of the Ibanez S61AL is made from Nyatoh which is often used as cost effective substitute for mahogany and it has a warm tone with full lower midrange. The flame maple cap adds a little bit of brightness and looks killer with the black mirage gradation finish.

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

The Fender Telecaster Maple Neck has been built without interruption since 1951, though models dating to 1950 used the name ‘Broadcaster’. The concept is simple yet was revolutionary, immediately appealed to countless guitarists and prompted many advances in musical technology. Here we’re looking at a Fender Telecaster Maple Neck with a black Polyester finish, worn enough through use to have exposed blonde and clear sealer finish undercoats. At the time, if Fender had orders for colours not in stock, they would re-finish a body. For example, this guitar’s body may well have originally been Blonde, and over-sprayed black before assembly and shipment.

Gibson Marauder Solidbody Sunburst, 1975

Gibson Marauder Solidbody Sunburst, 1975

The Gibson Marauder was designed by Bill Lawrence and built from 1975 to 1980, and over time a total of 7,112 were built including the Marauder Custom. This Gibson Marauder example dates to 1975 and was built at the Gibson Nashville plant. It is in good condition and plays well, though the pickups are not original and a full size humbucker has been installed in the bridge position, with the pickguard cut to fit. The finish otherwise is in good shape with a number of small dents and dings from honest use. The neck finish is worn from frets 2 to 7 from playing in that area. Fret wear is moderate.
